Mexican Lentil Soup
Combine all the ingredients in a large heavy duty pot, bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for approx. 50 minutes or until the lentils reach your desired tenderness. Ladle into bowls, top with desired amount of cheese and chopped fresh cilantro. Serve with tortilla chips if desired.
Notes: I have also used chicken instant bouillon & seasoning for this recipe. I have also used the cubes. I use Herb Ox brand chicken instant bouillon & seasoning and Herb Ox brand chicken bouillon cubes. If using the chicken instant bouillon & seasoning you will need 8 teaspoons. If using chicken bouillon cubes you will need 8 cubes. 1 teaspoon is = to 1 cube.
